'Selene', 2017, Cast Opaline Glass / Water-Jet Cut Stainless Steel / Aluminum,  33.5" x 33.5" x 3.5"

November 2-5, 2017

'Selene', 2017, will soon be on her way to SOFA Expo, Chicago (Nov 2-5). Opaline glass has been developed in the kiln with contrasting opacities to reveal a distinct shift from clear to milk white as the piece radiates outwards. Reminiscent of its water-stone, opal glass has been used to embody Selene, the Greek goddess of the moon whose gravitational pull connects us to the tides. Created at The Toledo Museum of Art during my GAPP Residency, the installation will be showcased through Habatat Galleries. Dimension: 33.5"x33.5"x3.5".

Indra's Web, a 50 component installation comprised of cast crystal prisms has just returned back to the US from her first debut in England at The British Glass Biennale 2017, held at The Ruskin Glass Center, Stourbridge. 

The British Glass Biennale is the UK's leading exhibition of excellence in contemporary glass by British artists, designers and craftspeople. It is the flagship show within the International Festival of Glass. The emphasis is on new work demonstrating the highest level of excellence in design, creative imagination and technical skill. This is the first year that British nationals living abroad have been able to submit work to the biennale. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to present my work to the British glass community. 

The work of 63 contemporary artists was featured in this years exhibition.
